Grown Ups Reviews

Matt Joseph
We Got This Covered

Grown Ups is cliched, predictable and full of immature and juvenile humor. The film recycles far too many jokes and it gets old real fast.

Don't take it too seriously and you'll have a good time.

The title mainly leaves one wondering when Sandler will chose to finally grow up and stop starring in this ongoing series of terrible comedies.

Doesn't so much play like a film than random home movies of Sandler and his usual screen cronies on vacation.

Five forgettable characters reunite for a (lame) joke-filled weekend.

The second half of Grown Ups isn't good enough to dig its way out of the tremendous hole it's created for itself but it's far from the worse thing Sandler has ever made. Maybe in another 20 years he'll make something funny.

Grown Ups is the perfect poster child for this maddening summer of movie mediocrity.

Grown Ups heralds a sad day for comedy nostalgists of a certain age. Call it the day the amusement died.

Surprisingly, amazingly, bafflingly uncomedic and unhilarious.

There's almost no plot, and loads of schmaltz, but the hidden metaphors and cast chemistry makes this a worthwhile effort.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

The shameless sentiment (a cute little girl wants to use the car GPS to locate heaven) and Sandler's ego-tripping (he's married to Salma Hayek, and he's a sure shot on the basketball court) interfere with the laughs.

This is London

Despite some passable gags and a whole posse of middle-aged funnymen, Denis Dugan's comedy is about the least grown-up movie you could see.

Shadows on the Wall

Not much more than an in-joke between the actors, this film is amiable but never funny. And despite some hackneyed moralising, it has nothing to say.

You've seen these actors play these characters many times before, and better.

Full of obvious jokes and schmaltzy sentiment, Grown Ups is as much fun as watching endless home movies of people you really don't know very well.

Sandler's abysmal script cooks up a bite-sized moral for the finale. Groan ups, more like.

Frankly, if this makes you laugh even once, I recommend seeking medical advice.

If root canal surgery feels too childish a torment, may we direct your attention to this ghastly celebrity roast in the guise of a boisterous family comedy.

If you thought writer-producer-actor Adam Sandler would never stoop lower than Little Nicky, here's the unwelcome proof that you were wrong.
